Our guest is Joe Neville, a technical consultant at HPE Aruba.
Today’s episode explores how the US federal government views IPv6 adoption. We also explore the use of IPv6 by the U.S. Department of Defense, including innovations, and how the DoD’s use affects its work with civilian entities. Our guest is Jeremy Duncan, founder and leading partner of the consultancy Tachyon Dynamics.
Today’s IPv6 Buzz dives into IPv6 special addresses–what they are, how they’re used in production, potential issues, and more.
In this IPv6 Buzz episode we discuss IPv4 special address ranges, the reasons behind efforts to make them globally routable, and what impact this is likely to have on IPv6 adoption.
Your IPv4 addresses are a financial asset because the market for v4 address space is rising. The question is, for how long? Guest Lee Howard joins the IPv6 Buzz podcast crew to discuss the financial implications of selling IPv4 addresses. They also discuss the performance and operational benefits of moving to IPv6.
AWS regards IPv6 as a key mechanism to enable customer agility, and to meet rising demands from new applications and devices, particularly IoT. In this episode, Scott and Tom interview Alan Halachmi, Senior Manager of Solutions Architecture at AWS. They discuss current and planned IPv6 support in AWS services, the cloud provider’s challenges in deploying the protocol, and advice for cloud users on adopting IPv6.
ARIN is the official network numbers register for IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, as well as ASNs, for North America. The IPv6 Buzz crew talk with Mark Kosters, ARIN’s CTO, about its role in providing IPv6 address resources, policy, and advocacy.
LinkedIn has been working with IPv6 for years. On today’s IPv6 Buzz episode, LinkedIn engineer Franck Martin discusses the technical and cultural challenges of adoption, explores why the company engaged with IPv6, and shares lessons to help others with their own deployments.
Learn about how IPv6 works on host OSs on today’s IPv6 Buzz podcast. Tom Coffeen and Scott Hogg talk with Ed Horley about the host OS course he’s teaching. They discuss how to set up a lab, how v6 differs from v4 at the host level, key differences in support for DHCPv6, and more.
Objections to IPv6 adoption tend to follow three tracks: we don’t need it, we don’t have budget, and we’ll lose the security and multihoming benefits of NAT. On today’s IPv6 Buzz podcast, Dr. David Holder explains why these objections don’t hold water, and how to communicate with business and technical leaders to overcome them.
Your v6s are here–where do you want ’em? On today’s IPv6 Buzz podcast, guest Tim Rooney dives into IPv6 address planning and management for IT teams that are just getting started.
Shannon McFarland discusses IPv6 and container networking on today’s IPv6 Buzz podcast episode. We look at the state of v6 support in containers and orchestration platforms, how v6 addressing works with containers, the role of service meshes, and much more.
Today’s IPv6 Buzz podcast discusses key approaches to getting IPv6 deployed in the enterprise. Guest Enno Rey talks about how to identify quick wins, being liberal and flexible as you deploy, and more. The IPv6 crew also talks about IPv6 security, and Enno shares highlights from his recent RIPE78 presentation.
The IPv6 Buzz crew talks MAP-T, MAP-E and Happy Eyeballs with Andrew Yourtchenko, co-author of the original Happy Eyeballs RFC. We discuss the role of Happy Eyeballs given current rates of IPv6 adoption, the differences between MAP-T and MAP-E, and more.
College instructor and author Rick Graziani stops by the IPv6 Buzz podcast to talk about teaching IPv6, including the differences between teaching college students and training IT professionals, how networking and IT are taught in universities and community colleges, and more.
The Packet Pushers stop by the IPv6 Buzz studios for a follow-up conversation with Tom Coffeen and Ed Horley on IPv6 address planning, including why nibble boundaries are so useful for subnetting, use cases for PI and PA address spaces, and tool recommendations.
State and regional IPv6 task forces advocate for IPv6 adoption by state governments and the private sector, and educate engineers. In today’s episode we chat with George Usi, the Co-Chair of the California IPv6 Task Force to learn more about the task force’s goals and what it’s achieved to date.
There are a few critical security differences between IPv4 and IPv6, including host addressing and extension headers. In today’s IPv6 Buzz episode, we examine these differences, and other v6 security issues, with guest Eric Vyncke, a Distinguished Engineer at Cisco and co-author of the book “IPv6 Security.”
Today’s episode of IPv6 Buzz answers listener questions including why NAT isn’t necessary for security, and the feasibility of scanning a v6 network to discover devices. Thanks for the questions and keep them coming!
In today’s episode we make sense of IPv6 protocol analysis with expert teacher and troubleshooter Denise Fishburne. We discuss the importance of using a protocol analyzer and packet captures to better understand IPv6, and how to get over your fear of learning this protocol.
In the latest episode of IPv6 Buzz we examine IPv6 deployment among cable providers. We’ll discuss industry trends, financial and technical drivers for adoption, and how the cable industry is working to transition IPv4 out of the providers’ access and distribution networks. Our guest is Dan Torbet.
On today’s IPv6 Buzz we examine the influence of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in today’s technology landscape, particularly around the Internet Protocol (IP). Our guest is Fred Baker, emeritus chair of the IETF.
What’s in store for IPv6 in 2019? What happened–and didn’t happen–in 2018? Ed, Scott, and Tom analyze the pace of IPv6 growth around the world over the past year, and offer forecasts for the coming year.
Thanks to everyone that tuned in this year! We’re looking forward to bringing you more IPv6 Buzz in 2019!
Today’s IPv6 Buzz episode peers into RFC 6555, aka ‘Happy Eyeballs,’ which helps dual-stack clients select a v6 or v4 address faster. Our guest is Dan Wing, a co-author of Happy Eyeballs.
